THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING
While the Cloud solution is popular for many reasons, such as affordability, no infrastructure requirements, and automatic updates, it’s important to understand some of its limitations when deciding between Cloud and Server.
Fremont, CA: There are convincing points on both sides of the Atlassian Cloud vs. Server debate. When selecting which deployment will best serve your organization in the long run, it’s vital to look at some of the more detailed requirements of each. Here are five benefits of Atlassian:
While Atlassian’s Cloud products have good uptime, there are times when performance can be compromised due to heavy usage. This usually starts around the 500+ user tier and goes up from there. If your instance goes down in the middle of the day, you’ll need to open an Atlassian ticket to get it back up. Consider whether having your instance down for an hour would be disruptive to your business if your firm demands a higher tier.
A Sandbox (or Stage/Development/QA) instance does not exist in Cloud. There’s no way to check out new features, workflows, or add-ons/apps because there’s no method to test them.
It is difficult to modify the URL once it has been chosen. When you join up for the 7-day Cloud trial, keep this in mind. There is a procedure to follow if you want to alter the URL. While an Atlassian Solutions Partner is not required to execute this, it does need some work.
Customers who use third-party add-ons/apps may find that their data is stored on a server in another location. There are no data security rules in place for that app’s data.
The Atlassian Cloud instance receives updates at random. When new modifications are pushed to the Cloud, there is no notification. You and your staff will have to adapt to the changes, for better or worse.
